Case Managers are prepared to offer comprehensive behavioral and emotional support in times of crisis and distress. Mental health crises among survivors, due to previous and present traumatic experiences, is common and so each survivor deserves proper plans to protect survivors throughout each crisis. Case managers will develop and enact crisis prevention and mitigation strategies when needed.
Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative (DVPI)
Domestic Violence Response and Prevention requires comprehensive education initiatives that informs and engages our communities. The Person Center offers customized educational workshops to address the needs of African Immigrant and Refugee communities, and provide critical information through the Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative. The Person Center also answers the call for trauma-informed, culturally specific, and religiously understanding materials and facilitation. We aim to offer the most up-to-date information and integrate evidence-based research literature in our workshop development. Workshops include the basics on domestic violence, sexual assault, and relationship violence. Additionally, these workshops expand to include methods of proper survivor support, sociological contributors to gender-based violence, domestic violence across families, religion or culture on domestic violence, prevalence and impact of sexual violence, plus others.

Advocacy and Public Policy
The Person Center was founded upon the belief that true justice for survivors of domestic violence requires justice for all survivors of violence in all of its forms. African Immigrant and Refugee survivors are often victims of conflict, persecution, and post-colonial poverty – and throughout their lives at home or abroad in the US they are victims of structural violence. Global and historical oppression is an ever-present and unjust thread that weaves throughout the stories of African survivors.
TPC is dedicated to fulfilling the need of holistic, informed, and courageous advocacy that targets and dismantles the systems and cultures of violence that disproportionately and purposefully inhibit the lives of African survivors. The right to life, a life of joy, health, and safety requires the eradication of unjust systems of power that immorally awards inequitable authority and resources.
